It's not just the popular shows that shaped our memories when we were kids as we watched loads of shows that are now sadly forgotten. Every now and again you get a glimpse into one of your memory banks and can't think what that old show was. It's frustrating and drives us mad but when we finally remember enough detail it can be very satisfying. These shows definitely fall into the forgotten category but they were great. Why aren't they remembered as fondly as some other shows? Sometimes it's down to scheduling and sometimes they weren't deemed cool in the playground. Either way, they faded into the background so let's bring them back into the light. The Riddlers https://www.youtube.com/watch?vYPLIgBJb6z8 The Riddlers aired on ITV between 1989 and 1998 and was often shown during the day in the summer holidays. The title characters, whose names were Mossop, Glossop, and Tiddler lived at the bottom of the garden and their main focus was to solve problems. Other characters included the storyteller Eesup, Marjorie whose garden they lived in, and Mr. Grimley the gardener. Ox Tales https://www.youtube.com/watch?vxrqV0PG0Haw Ox Tales told the story of Ollie the Ox who ran a farm named, The Funny Farm. The farm contained every animal possible and things were always going wrong. Ollie was helped by his friend Jack the Turtle and his pet dog Sammy. The show aired on Channel 4 during the summer holidays and also had a run on ITV. Interesting fact, it was actually created by Hiroshi Sasagawa who created Speed Racer. Ovide and the Gang https://www.youtube.com/watch?vW8gKkiAry4U Ovide and the Gang, also known as Ovide Video, was a French canadian production that came to CBBC in 1988 before moving to Channel 4. Ovide was a blue Platypus that lived on a tropical island and was leader of its various inhabitants. He spends most of his time trying to relax with his friends but the shows villains always got in the way. The villains were Cy Sly the snake and Bobo who follows Cy around but often helps Ovide. The Secret Life of Toys https://www.youtube.com/watch?vAkWqL2C28Js The Secret Life of Toys was a Jim Henson creation that aired on the BBC from 1994. It followed Ruby Tiger and his toy friends as they told stories in the bedroom of Penny and Simon, the children that owned them. Its similarities with Toy Story don't end there as in each episode they have to try and not be discovered by the kids. the way that the children played with them set up the scenarios for each story. Spider! https://www.youtube.com/watch?vLD_WvcLi95I&t275s Spider! originally aired on CBBC in 1991 and was quite unique as a show. Each episode was essentially a music video as the narrator sung a song about what was happening. The premise is that of a young boy who's scared of spiders until he eventually makes friends with a big house spider who likes to follow him around. Many of the episodes actually had the Spider stopping the boy from getting up to mischief. Moschops https://www.youtube.com/watch?v-jFV8Mx5XZw Going further back for this one as Moschops was first aired in 1983 on ITV. Moschops was a stop motion show about a young dinosaur named Moschops and his friends. The show featured a range of dinosaurs including Ally the Allosaurus, Mrs. Kerry the Triceratops, and Mr. Icthyosaurus. Mospchops lived in a cave with his Grandfather Diplodocus and Uncle Rex who was a T-Rex. The group spends a lot of time looking after Flower, the first flower on Earth. The Adventures of Portland Bill https://www.youtube.com/watch?vNhLC8YyqIUc Another one from all the way back in 1983 this show also aired on ITV. Portland Bill lived in a lighthouse on Guillemot Rock which was near the village of Mcguillycuddy. It was a simple show that saw Portland Bill go about his life in the lighthouse and in the village. All the characters in the show were named after British coastal locations and names that came up in the Shipping Forecast. The Adventures of Pete & Pete https://www.youtube.com/watch?vDRUD8NqLGuc Pete & Pete was a kids comedy show that aired on Nickelodeon between 1993 and 1996. It told the story of brothers Pete & Pete and the bizarre goings-on in their neighbourhood. Little Pete had a tattoo on his forearm named Petunia who has some powers and there is a local superhero named Artie the World's Strongest Man. Even now the show is genuinely hilarious so if you didn't have Satellite back in the day and missed it you really should catch up. Tugs https://www.youtube.com/watch?vkwl058RVP7A Tugs was made by the same studio as Thomas the Tank Engine and was done in the same style. In the show two companies of Tug boats competed for business in a big port. The heroes were called Star Fleet and the villains were the Z-Stacks. They would often get into serious trouble as the Z-Stacks would try to sink them to win their trade. It only ran for one season on ITV in 1989 which is a real shame as it had real character and was actually far more dramatic than Thomas. Wizadora https://www.youtube.com/watch?v-lSKi8xqkK4 Wizadora is probably the most popular and well-remembered show on our list but it's amazing how many people have forgotten it. The show ran between 1991 and 1997 on ITV and had a total of seven seasons. Wizadora was a trainee wizard who would always try to solve her problems with magic that she hadn't quite mastered yet. She would usually get help from the scarecrow named Tatty Bogle although he was usually pretty useless. There were also the drawer people who were basically a trio of naughty socks. Wizadora was actually played by three different actresses in total Cathy Lawday (1991), Lizzie Van Der Plank(1993-96), and Lizzie McPhee(1997). So there we have our list of kids TV shows that people seem to have forgotten. We hope some of these have triggered some happy memories for you and you're busy checking them all out again. There are obviously loads more shows that are sadly forgotten so what are your favourites that nobody else seems to remember?
